Totally Love this Show
10 September 2013 | by mauvemoonlightSee all my reviews

I'm a bit of a true crime fan anyway and Lt. Joe Kenda is absolutely my cuppa tea.

I love the droll manner in which he comments on the crime or more often the criminal(s). Lt. Kenda is who makes this show what it is - it would just be another whodunnit without him. He has such an entertaining personality - absolutely riveting.

I always make a point of watching whenever I see this show listed on the ID Channel.

For those who have not seen this show, I highly recommend it. Lt. Kenda is an older gentleman who does the commenting and narrative bits while a younger actor portrays him in the scenes.

While the crime is shown, it is not generally overly graphic.

Lt. Kenda has investigated over 400 homicides during his career and he knows how criminals' minds work. He knows all the "tells" when they're lying and exactly how to draw them out and get the truth of what really happened.

10 stars for Lt. Kenda Homicide Hunter!
